Hi darlings. If any of you follow me on Instagram then you'll know that I was feeling spendy the other day and treated myself to some Chanel make up. I brought an eye shadow, a blush and 3 nail polishes. Reviews to come :)

I'll start with the first thing we lay our eyes on, the packaging. All packaging of Chanel cosmetics is absolutely beautiful. The sophisticated glossy black compact is so chic and classic with their trademark white Chanel logo engraved in the centre. You know this is a very luxurious brand and product as your compact is held in a little velvet case, which I think is a lovely added touch! This is easily the classiest, most beautiful packaging of a make up product that I own and I will be whipping this out of my bag to touch up lipstick for the sake of it purely to show it off. Just saying..

I opted for the shade 94 Éclairé which is a beautiful yellow gold with a hint of glimmer. You'd expect the pigmentation of this to not be that opaque as it's a very common thing among lighter eye shadows, but that doesn't apply here. This is so pigmented and rich in colour that only one swatch with your make up brush is enough per eyelid. The formula is luxurious, it's silky smooth and ultra-finely milled which makes your blending game a hell of a lot easier. The finish is beautiful, there's nothing you could compare it to and the staying power is fantastic. A busy day at work and it's still on your eyes after an 8 hour shift. This is great for everyday as you can wear it alone which makes your eyes appear bigger and fresher but you can also layer additional eye shadows on top for a really glam look. I wouldn't normally use the little eye shadow brush that comes with it as lets face it most of them never serve their purpose well, but this is so good at picking up and packing on the product. The embedded logo of the two C's in the centre is again another lovely added touch, although I am a little apprehensive to directly swipe my brush over it as I don't want to ruin it. (Ha, saddo)

At £23.00 for just one eye shadow this is by no means cheap, however you need hardly any product during application and is a true luxury. Someone once said to me 'You just know when you're wearing Chanel make up' it's true. The next item I plan on getting from Chanel is a lipstick.

Have you tried any of Chanel's make up?
What lipstick would you recommend to get?
